The Tank Anode – good or bad? Reply To: Anode – good or bad?

Hello: That looks like an aluminum anode with very little wear…. not a good thing in a twenty year old heater. If you’re an optimist, (and the combustion chamber looks OK) get a magnesium anode and put it in. Your water must be pretty good and aluminum doesn’t work well in low conductivity water, magnesium works better. Fingers crossed! 😎

Yours, Larry
